Instead of a new members page, if you're looking to get started with the G+ community, try adding this circle. It's the circle I've made of folks who seem to actively engage in conversations here. They post in their streams and they post comments in other people's streams. Starting and engaging in conversation is the best way to use Google+. Don't feel you need to know someone before you circle them; just circle people you find interesting. Comment on posts when you have something to say. Engage.2011-12-12 09:14:31203403CC G+

Johnny Cash "Hurt" (Official Music Video)

You can see the age showing in his every move, the sorrow weighing down his every word, and the pain penetrating the silence that surrounds him. His very eyes tell you a tale of regret; his words simply tell you what you already know. No one, not even the artists of the song (Nine Inch Nails), could have sung this song so powerfully. Of all his timeless works, I must say that his cover of "Hurt" is arguably his most profound performance.

The lyrics are a masterpiece, originally written by Nine Inch Nails lead vocalist Trent Reznor. The video is flawless, a testimony to both writer and singer and a vocal epitaph for the latter. The song is powerful, sung by a man with a voice that bellows baritone deep into your soul. The singer is hurt, regretting all that he did and all he could have done differently. John... more »

Well, something strange has happened... For some reason, an account on Debate.org has been opened with the username "Nokkenbuer," an alias I have been using exclusively for over seven years and has been pretty much my unique signature since I began using the Internet.

The strange part is that I've never heard of Debate.org and I highly suspect someone is impersonating me. I sent in a message to Customer Support, and reported the profile. Hopefully, something can be done about this soon.

Copy of Message to Customer Support:

I just made this account, which I hope will be temporary.

Just moments ago, I was alerted via Google Alerts that a new search result has been indexed on Google involving my Internet alias, Nøkkenbuer (spelled "Nokkenbuer" when accents are not allowed). Apparently, a user has created an account with this as his... more »

"Scientists Discover Atheists Psychologically Cannot Exist"

I have yet to find a link from a more credible source, but from what I read it seems pretty understandable. I disagree with the absurd claim that "atheism/atheists cannot exist" because it poses a false dichotomy, but I nevertheless agree with its sentiments. I've long suspected that spirituality is a deeply-ingrained part of the human condition and psyche, religious or not, and that it serves an important evolutionary role.

I need to stress that this supposed new finding doesn't imply the existence of God, only imply the necessity of religion and spirituality. At least to me, this isn't surprising news.

What are your thoughts? And if anyone can find a more credible or detailed article, please by all means post it.

This is by far the most absurd, utterly insane "historical" revision of human history and the formation of the universe I've ever encountered.

"I'm not saying this is fact, I'm simply saying: decided for yourself."

He then presents his speculative bullshit as if it were facts, offering no sources or citations and no evidence for his absurd claims. This should be labeled as "Comedy" for how laughably stupid it is, not "Education."

To be honest, I pretty much consider anyone who took any of these senseless ramblings seriously as either mentally impaired or extremely gullible. Only the most daft fools believe this nonsense.

Honestly, I don't care if it's a wise move. +Barack Obama is serving his final term in office as president, so there's pretty much no concern over any reelection. Moreover, his alleged "mocking" comments were actually very factual:

In a commencement address given for graduates of the University of California at Irvine, Mr. Obama likened climate-change deniers in Congress to people who thought the moon was made of cheese and called them a "fairly serious threat to everybody’s future."

The fact of the matter is that overwhelming scientific research has proven time and time again that not only is climate change real, and not only is it happening at this very moment, but that humans are likely the primary cause of it. It's absurd that approximately 43% of citizens in the United States reject these findings, many of whom dismiss them as being skewedfo... more »

I came across this article during my browsing and I thought some of you may find this interesting.

Quoted from the article:
"According to the Center for Disease Control’s national survey on sexual violence, more than 5 million men in the United States have been “made to penetrate” someone else in their lifetime, whether by coercion, intimidation, or because they were incapacitated. In a largely overlooked study focusing exclusively on college males, 51.2 percent of participants reported experiencing a least one incident of sexual victimization, including unwanted sexual contact (21.7 percent), sexual coercion (12.4 percent) and rape (17.1 percent).  Of course, most men assume they’ll be ostracized for reporting such emasculating violations, so the real numbers are likely at lot higher."

Regarding my opinion on this whole topic, I'm not sure whether it can beclassifi... more »

(I had typed something similar, but much less detailed, on April 20, 2014, but it was unfortunately removed after being reported by some idiot who thought I was celebrating Hitler's birth. I'm not. This is an alternative analysis of Adolf Hitler's life and legacy, not a celebration of it.)

Today is April 20, 2014. Typically on this day, people celebrate—or at least talk about—that today is 43rd annual Weed Day. Pro-legalization advocacy groups pump out more propaganda, opponents of "reefer madness" come out in force to condemn the lazy potheads, and people (teens and oldies alike) roll a joint or smoke a blunt in observance of this unofficial holiday.

I usually keep my personal life somewhat private, though I do have some news I am proud to share.

I have been in a long-distance relationship with this girl I met for a little under four years now and during that time we have learned more about each other before actually meeting than most people will know about their own spouses in a lifetime. Throughout these years, I have experienced more with her than many will with their closest lover, discovered more about her than anyone will ever know, and shared more about myself to her than I ever thought I would. I regret many things in my life, more than I can imagine, but I have never regretted even for a moment being with her. She truly is the love of my life.

On February 22, I finally met the love of my life in person. She flew down to spend nearly a month with me at my house and during this time, I have gotten to discover more about her... more »

I recently found out that while my mother was seeking an affordable insurance plan, Obamacare is actually more expensive than most of the other insurance plans offered. However, this is primarily due to the fact that Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) blocked parts of Obamacare's implementation, including the federal subsidies given to participants, which would drastically lower the cost of the insurance and thereby making it affordable.

Having experienced this dilemma myself, I feel obligated to ask: is the unaffordability of the insurance provided by the Affordable Care Act caused by Republican measures to prevent its full implementation in many states or is it a problem with the reform bill itself? Or is it something else entirely?

I expect varying responses to this post and encourage the sharing of them all. I myself am undecided as to what I should think of this.

You can see the earnest confidence in the eyes of every single one of these people, and that's the most heartbreaking part.  There isn't an argument here that isn't pretty trivially refuted, so it forces me to ask what their lives are like that nobody who loves them, who cares about them, who's concerned with their wellbeing hasn't sat them down and explained the simple things.

I don't doubt that they're surrounded by love, I just wonder how neither they nor their closest nor the closest to those have anyone willing and able to help them see the real beauty of all we know about the world.

Is there any news regarding whether we will be able to fully customize our custom URLs? I'm aware that a number of preapproved URLs are available to choose, but none of them are the one I am seeking to have. Should I simply accept one of the preapproved custom URLs or should I wait?

If there is no talk about fully customizable URLs, then I might as well snag as original a URL as I can now. Otherwise, I'm willing to hold out if there's a significant chance that further customization may be permitted.

This kid is childish and a bit annoying, but his enthusiasm is contagious. After only ONE LIKE, he was astounded. He asked for "3-5," and received 30,000 in return. I'm sharing this video for the sole purpose of joining the bandwagon, though, and maybe a bit because I want to see how far this video will go.

Be sure to like and, uh, it might save you a couple cringes if you skip watching the video throughout.

Quick question: Regarding the whole custom URL deal, I see that you can no longer suggest a URL for approval. Does that mean the selection available right now will be the entirety of what I can choose?

I was really hoping for https://www.google.com/Nokkenbuer/ but I suppose that won't be happening.

Well, I retook this quiz and now got this result. I am pretty sure this is not accurate, though, because I disagree strongly with much of the Green Party's environmentalist fanaticism. I do, however, believe the estimate that I side with the Democratic Party 83% is pretty accurate. While I do not claim to be a Democrat and refuse to label myself as such (I am an Independent), I do admittedly sympathize with Democrats more than Republicans. Nevertheless, Democrats are typically too extreme for my tastes as well, hence why I detest labeling myself as one.

My Results:
86% Green Party
83% Democrat
63% Socialist
59% Libertarian
09% Republican

To be honest, I'm surprised with these results. I would consider myself more of a liberal libertarian, if that makes any sense, than socialist or democratic. Oh well, it's close enough.

I personally do not use PEMDAS, but rather a more sophisticated and refined version of it that a mathematics teacher taught me a long time ago: GEMDAS. The difference is that instead of restricting the order of operations to only parentheses, which is by far not the only grouping mechanism in mathematics, the first operation would be considered "G" for "Grouping." By replacing the specific grouping mechanism (parentheses) with the more general, overarching function, it eliminates confusion when other grouping mechanisms are used.

The only real problem with this is that there must be an implicit understanding that not all grouping mechanisms function in the same way. For example, the modulus (absolute value) groups numbers and operations in a way that strips them of their positive or negative values. Similarly, the grouping of numbers and operations under a root also... more »

I personally believe these so-called "inefficiencies" of neurons and the human brain can actually benefit us as a species and moreover may explain why we are so creative. The probabilistic, leaking, and interconnected nature of neurons permit spontaneity and allows for the potential or unpredictable behavior. These neurological misfires and leakages are believed to be the basis upon which human learning by means of mnemonic devices and recognition functions. Moreover, the act of dreaming and the creative faculties of the mind are due to neurons firing randomly, eliciting fragmented memories and imaginative impressions that shape into a semi-coherent experience.

The human mind is spontaneous and unpredictable. That is what makes us as a species so successful. If it were more "efficient," I seriously doubt we would be so dynamic. This is why, on a somewhat related note, I doubt... more »

Although I typically despise +Fox News for it's heavily biased and consistently inaccurate news reporting, this article is admittedly well-written and does further an important point worth considering: there is a significant and major difference between Muslims and Islamic extremists.

I have thought in a way quite similar to this for a while now, as have many others, but I'm surprised that I'm on the relatively same side as others—conservatives from Fox News of all people—whom I would never expect to have opinions to which I concurred.

I recommend reading this article, if only to prove me wrong. It very well may just be worth your time.

While I would prefer to change the names of the planets to their Greek mythological counterparts, I would be satisfied if we formally named the Earth "Gaia" and the Universe "Pan." I'm willing to settle with naming our second Earth "Terra" and our Moon "Luna" if I must. They're at least better than "Earth 2.0" and "the Moon."

Ugh, I hate vernacular.

Socrates once said "true wisdom is knowing you don't know." Although Socrates implication was a rhetoric we all accept this statement as a true definition for wisdom.

Also let us be mindful that the statement "true wisdom is knowing that you don't know" only set us up for a learning experience. The moment we've realized that we do not know of something we can take steps to learn it. But had we not realized this we could not have known anything about it. It is in that context that Socrates asserted that "True wisdom is knowing you don't know."

But from a rational sense, if we are goring to accept philosophy as the love of wisdom, we must know about that which is wisdom. Unless we proclaim that philosophy is knowing that we don't know. If that is the meaning of philosophy then we've made progress, but to accept philosophy... more »

To those of you calling Obama a hypocrite: he isn't. A change in one's opinion does not qualify as hypocrisy. A hypocrite is someone who claims one thing while acting in such a way that it contradicts the previous claim. However, this description assumes a static mindset, one in which the individual's views, beliefs, and opinions remain the same throughout the hypocrisy. President Obama changed his mind between the time of his initial claims and actions and the more recent ones. Therefore, he is no hypocrite.

Just as Obama admitted, he was foolish and naïve when he made that vote—which was purely symbolic, mind you. The difference between then and now is that while there is still a debate on the debt ceiling and the threat of a government shutdown and default, Obama did not react in the same way as Republicans are now behaving.

Here is a powerful article from a former soldier who realized just how much the United States promises its allies—and how little it lives up to them. This very reason, and many others, is why I look at my country with anger and disdain. America used to be something great, but now? The ideals on which this nation was built have been discarded, perverted, and misused for selfish political purposes. What's the point of being a global police force (of which I also disapprove) when we cannot even live up to our promises and repay the loyalty of others? We're not a noble nation of patriots and progressives, but a corrupt country of liars and bigots. Worse of all is that I have little hope that much will change.

This is a powerful article regarding the current conflict in Syria, the previous war in Iraq, and the entire issue of modern warfare and how it should be addressed in contemporary society. If you are interested in any of the aforementioned topics, I urge you to read this great article.

This new pope actually isn't a bad guy. Given his actions have been genuine, I can really grow to respect him. He exemplifies what it means to be a Christian and although I don't consider myself one, he's the type of religious leader I would follow.
